On May 4th, I will be presenting a workshop at the Spectrum 44th Annual Conference on Addiction Studies in Houston at the Westin Hotel at Memorial City. The topic is what is occurring in the mental health field related to technology and mental health programs, services, groups, teaching, training, support, and overcoming addiction. The world of mental health is changing rapidly. Technology, health related apps help you track your life, blood pressure, A1C blood levels for diabetics, sleep cycles, heart rate, mood and much more. The new wave is telemedicine, telemental health, coaching, support groups, 12 Step work, nursing and virtual doctor visits. My presentation will provide an overview of the different platforms that are most popular providing encrypted and HIPAA compliance for patient privacy. There will be a reception for networking from 5:00 to 6:00 pm in the Willow Room, 4th floor for Professional Development.
